The triple stamp is characterized by a panoramic shape, whether combined or separated the desired expressive purpose of the design is achieved.

Mediterranean Sea region is characterized by various traditional costumes, for instance Egypt is located in the South East of the Mediterranean Sea and combines lots of different civilizations as Pharaonic, Romanian, Coptic and Islamic, all these civilizations made a different structure from other neighboring countries to Egypt.
As for the areas overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, they have a different impression from the South areas, despite the inspiration of the ancient Egyptian civilization, as the first stamp from the right side depicts the ornaments and costumes of the Egyptian civilization that is the true heritage of the Egyptians, the middle stamp depicts Nuba region (South Egypt) and the third stamp on the left side represents the coastal area, traditional costumes depicts the dance of fishermen.
Egypt has many patterns of traditional costumes, but when designing the triple stamp we wanted to express a simple part of this huge Egyptian heritage.
